Frank LaRose Goes On The Attack in Messy #OHSEN Primary
April 28, 2023
In case you missed it, the Republican Senate primary got even messier this week as Frank LaRose went on the attack, hitting his potential opponents in what has already been called “one of the messiest,” “most expensive,” and “bruising” Senate primaries in the country.
From attacking his opponents for trying to buy the election, boasting he would be the “strongest candidate” in the race, and jabbing back at Moreno’s criticism that LaRose should do his job, it’s clear LaRose’s “shadow campaign” is not going to sit quietly on the sidelines. As this primary continues to heat up, it’s only going to get messier, nastier, and more chaotic from here.
The Vindicator: Money is key to LaRose’s Senate bid

- “The one thing I lack is what those two candidates have in abundance and that is personal wealth,” LaRose said. “I don’t have that, and I also don’t think that only wealthy people should be able to run for the U.S. Senate.”
- “…if I run I would be the strongest candidate.”
- “What I have are things that can’t be bought. They have to be earned, such as deep relationships with people all over the state, such as a good conservative voting record.”
- During a podcast last week, Moreno took a swipe at LaRose, saying: “When you have others that enter the race, especially those who just won a very consequential role and have a four-year term ahead of them to do some important work, those people jumping in the race make the race very messy and very expensive.”
- In response, LaRose told me: “I think it’s a hollow excuse. He’s looking at the same polling numbers and he realizes that if I run, I’d be the strongest candidate for this office. So he’s going to come up with any reason” to criticize me.
